Our Classroom Schedule
Daily 5 - Language Arts Framework
We use the Daily 5 framework in our classroom for ELA instructional delivery.
What is The Daily 5?
Daily 5The Daily 5™ is a framework for structuring literacy time so students develop lifelong habits of reading, writing, and working independently. The second edition was released in spring 2014. How does it work? Students select from five authentic reading and writing choices, working independently toward personalized goals, while the teacher meets individual needs through whole-group and small-group instruction, as well as one-on-one conferring. These choices include
Read to Self,
Work on Writing,
Read to Someone,
Listen to Reading, and
Teachers tell us their Daily 5 classrooms produce productive, highly engaged students who are developing a true love of literacy. The benefits of The Daily 5 for teachers and schools include the following:
students develop independence, stamina, and accountability;
less time consumed by classroom management leaves more for instruction;
the framework adapts flawlessly to district-adopted curriculums and state mandates;
improves schoolwide literacy achievement; and
behaviors of independence transfer to other content areas.
The CAFE System is how The Sisters, and teachers all over the world, deliver instruction within The Daily 5 framework. It is what enables teachers to choose individualized goals, assign strategies, monitor progress, and provide just-in-time instruction to meet the needs of every student.
